God’s Joy

Nehemiah 8:10- Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

The joy of the Lord is my strength. I will not faint nor be afraid for the joy of the Lord is my strength today. His living waters fill me,  His power it does heal me, For the joy of the Lord is my strength. Though thousands come against me,  my faith shall never fade, For the joy of the Lord is my strength. I’ll walk with him forever,and never shall I fear,  For the joy of the Lord is my strength. my heart will stand firm and shall not shake, though mistakes I sometimes do make, For the joy of the Lord is my strength. I will not bend to the left or the right,  I shall stand firm, in light of morning or the dark of night, I’ll follow his word  and do what is right, For the joy of the Lord is my strength. Weather bright sunny day or dark rainy night I will stand with him, with all my might,  For the joy of the Lord is my strength. Firm and true are you Oh Lord,  your word shall never change,  I chose to trust in you oh Lord  from now until forever more, For the joy of the Lord is my strength.
